So this year we decided to record a Holiday message at our last team meeting for the year. For 12 months now the Melbourne team have been gathering for work/social meetings monthly at a local venue – the Melbourne Golf Academy. The staff are amazing, the food delicious and we get a full conference room with white board and a view over the putting greens. Who wouldn’t be happy with that! (occasionally we practice our putting too!)
Now we know that our Chinese staff don’t celebrate XMAS, and New Year isn’t until February, but that didn’t stop us spending a very funny afternoon practicing our XMAS message in Chinese. Because for us it is not about any one person’s culture; we are so multicultural that whether it is Hanukkah, Diwali, Thanksgiving or XMAS it is more about the feelings and concepts behind the celebration that are important. And at ICA & CoachCampus at this time of the year, heading into our annual 3 week break, it is about reflecting on the year that has been and wishing everyone the best for the year to come.
So THANK YOU to all students, graduates and staff at ICA, we all love the amazing community we have created and look forward to doing great things together next year.
